EDIT: Governor Romney, May I Present Miss Sandy

As the East Coast hunkers down, evacuates, and survives Hurricane Sandy, allow me to remind us all about what is at stake November 6. 

Stay safe.

EDIT: Did I, contrary to my usual m.o., post a quickee-meme based blog post? GUILTY
Am I just a stupid waitress who allows my "liberal political leanings" to color my understanding of "the facts?" NOT GUILTY!
I do, however, appreciate that new readers may be confused as to the depth that my posts usually go into, and I apologize to any of you who were grossly disappointed.

Check out this link:

It spells out what Romney said to King about FEMA:

Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that’s the right direction. And if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that’s even better.  Instead of thinking in the federal budget, what we should cut — we should ask ourselves the opposite question. What should we keep?  We should take all of what we’re doing at the federal level and say, what are the things we’re doing that we don’t have to do? 
Send it back to the private sector? G-d help us. Why bother having government if people with no money have to beg for disaster relief? Giving disaster relief to the private sector would turn FEMA into the health insurance debacle the majority of us have been suffering under for decades.

Where I am currently situated, we got lucky. Everything is closed, but we are home and I must take care of my beautiful kiddos to day. :-) My heart goes out to all of you in hard-hit places such as NYC. To all of you, but especially to those of you, such as waitresses, who depend upon working shifts for income and are unable, like all hourly workers, to make the money you need to survive right now. May the government do it's job and get us all through this natural disaster.



  1. Dirtbag. If America votes Mittens in, they have officially lost their minds.

  2. I'll bet he'd like to eat those words right now... along with so many other things he has said.

  3. If America votes this moron in, I'm moving to Canada. I love my country and don't want to stick around to see it trashed!

  4. Thanks for all the in-depth political analysis.

    1. My pleasure! It took me awhile to piece it all together, hope it was worth it.

  5. Perhaps it would behoove us all to read what the candidates actually say. Romney didn't say he wanted to eliminate disaster aid, he said he wanted that function to be handled by the states as they are the primary responders to a disaster. Your personal political leaningis obviously coloring your interpretation of the facts.

    1. I admit to putting up a quick little post, which is not my usual mode of operations. However, while I certainly do not hide my liberal political stance, I am not just a stupid waitress who cannot interpret facts.

      Here is just one link that details what I was posting about: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/10/politics-of-fema-mitt-romney-suggested-less-federal-involvement-paul-ryan-budget-scrutinized/.
